Good e-Reader Gives is a two month long celebration where we giveaway a brand new e-reader every single week. Just yesterday someone won a Kindle Paperwhite and today you can win a Inkbook Obsidian! All you need to do is visit our YouTube Channel for contest details! You can enter the contest from anywhere in the world, and we will ship it out to you at our own expense.
The Obsidian features a six inch e-Ink Carta Capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024 X 758 and 212 PPI. I really like the fact the screen is completely flush with the bezel, the only other digital readers on the market that do the same thing is the Amazon Kindle Voyage the recently discontinued Kobo Aura.
The resolution on the Obsidian is passable, but there are better products on the market if super high-definition displays mean a lot to you. The Kindle Voyage, Kindle Paperwhite 3, Tolino Shine 2 and the Kobo Aura H20 all have 1430 x 1080 and 300 PPI.
Sure the competition has better resolution, but they also lock you into their own walled gardens. You are stuck with the built in digital bookstore that comes bundled with the device, whereas with the Obsidian, it runs Android. There is a built in app store called Midiapolis, which has around a thousand apps.
Underneath the hood is a Dual-Core Cortex A9 1.0 GHz processor. It has 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. You have the ability to expand the internal storage up to 32 GB via the Micro SD.
